for terry mcauliffe, the race that the republicans were supposed to win. it's an off year election, it's in a state that has for four decades voted against the party occupying the white house in gubernatorial elections. it's a state where terry mcauliffe was crushed in the democratic primary just four years ago. this year, barring a major upset, mcauliffe is going to win. and the difference here is the tea party, which is now faring far worse than president obama. in that same poll that has obama's numbers falling, the tea party's favorable rating has crashed to 14%. the reason a top democrat is winning in a premiere swing state in the country is this guy -- >> i was the first attorney general in the country to sue to stop the implementation of the notorious federal health care law. >> reporter: ken cuccinelli the personification of the tea party. the polls say he is going to lose. his demise in virginia could be a sign of things to come. >> all right, joining me now is congressman gerry connolly, a democrat from virginia. congressman, thank you for taking some time tonight. i want to
hours before voting begins, democratic terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by a slim margin. is the obama care debacle the reason this race has tightened? >> no, this is an example where the tea party is killing the republican party. mcauliffe is a good friend of mine, i can't believe he's going to be governor. the tea party nominated this right wing guy who doesn't stand a chance. it's not clear. >> another tea party victim. >> he does stand a chance. he's down six points. the problem really is the libertarian candidate who has ten points which he's taking from the republicans. the option -- the problem with the republicans is they can't get all these people together. they're not lock step like the left. it would be great for the libertarian candidate. >> will be a lot bigger -- >> there was reporting today that said women are going to make the difference in virginia. that's true everywhere. since you gave women the vote, that's going to happen in all these states. >> what a mistake. >> northern virginia has changed a lot demographically. the federal government shutdown really pissed the
york city mayor, bill de blasio against joe lhota. terry mcauliffe is several points ahead of ken cuccinelli and chris christie has a wide lead over barbara buono. but virginia, new jersey say a lot of the ballots for the heart of the republican party. the clintons are really making virginia their territory. >> exactexactly. >> but it's going to show the difference between chris christie taking over a blue state and here we go with mcauliffe where ken cuccinelli could have run away with this race. >> this is like the bonapartes making maximillan emperor of mexico. this is a reach by the clintons. they take a guy, a good guy, mcauliffe, and put him into virginia. it's an extraordinary success. he's a very likeable guy but the clintons will get a lot of credit for this. this is the first big pin on the map. we've got virginia next time. >> do you think this is the tale of where the republican party is going and chris christie will become the national story? >> i have a dog in this race. i want the republican party to return to its roots. it will always have a very hard right part to
victory for terry mcauliffe as governor. >>> a soldier helplessly watches over facetime as his pregnant wife is attacked thousands of miles away. >>> but first, news nation is following developing news. the supreme court rejecting oklahoma's appeal to reinstate its strict law banning medical abortions, specifically those performed with the drug ru486 known as the abortion pill. the court initially agreed to take up the appeal this spring but later asked oklahoma's court to clarify what the law covered. the court responded by saying the measure effectively bans all medical abortions. that apparently wasn't enough for justices and now oklahoma's supreme court decision avoiding the law will remain intact. pete williams joins us live. this is one of a number of abortion related cases and high court is expected to consider soon. >> right, but consider the importance of what the court did here. as a technical legal matter, what the supreme court did here today, no presidential value and expressed no view on the laws and said we're not going to hear this case after all. consider the fact in th
was on the campaign trail there in the state of virginia yesterday for the democratic candidate terry mcauliffe. he's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well
't. he was out campaigning for terry mcauliffe in virginia and i went to see the vice president on the campaign trail. it struck me that he didn't mention barack obama. he didn't mention the president of the united states. he didn't mention any accomplishment of the administration. joe biden talked all about his middle class upbringing, how he bonded with terry mcauliffe because he'd been at syracuse and terry grew up there. it was vintage joe biden. i couldn't help but think that joe biden i think reading between the lines of john and mark's excellent book and i've read it all, it's fantastic. that i think joe biden was trying to show them how loyal he'd been and what a great relationship he had with the president. there's plenty of evidence of that in here. and yet the president's aides, were behind his back trying to find out whether to dump him or not. i think it's a problem. >> i got a comment to what he's up to. you write in the book that, quote, biden wanted to expand his network while he was campaigning for obama he thought he should meet with new people, stroke some don
the other big gubernatorial race in virginia, vice president biden stumping with terry mcauliffe. president obama was just there yesterday. what does a win in virginia mean not only for mcauliffe but for 2014 and what message could it potentially send to the tea party? >> look, assuming terry mcauliffe wins and most polling suggests he's ahead by mid single digits and high single digits, assuming he wins, there is no question about virginia as a toss-up state. you can at least make the argument that it may swing slightly democratic in statewide elections. it's elected -- bob mcdonnell is the republican governor now, three out of the four governors, mark werner, tim kaine, mcauliffe, three of the last four governors have been democrats. barack obama carried the state in 2008. he carried the state in 2012. so there's an argument to be made that virginia is definitely a toss-up state and maybe thumb on the scale toward democrats, which is a remarkable change in the last six year. >> all right. chris cillizza, thanks for joining us this afternoon. appreciate it. >>> up next senator patrick leah
occupying the white house has lost the following race. this shows that streak may be about to end. terry mcauliffe leads ken cuccinelli by 12 points. his largest margin in the poll yet. and when mcauliffe supporters asked what motivates their vote, as i said, nearly two-thirds, 64%, say it's the chance to vote against the republican cuccinelli. by just not being the extreme right winger, the democrat gets the bulk of the votes. this matches, by the way, almost the 65% of virginia voters who have now said they have an unfavorable opinion of the republican party nationally suggesting the force driving this election of virginia next tuesday is the negative voter feeling about the republican party nationally. gene, this is stark stuff. i know we live in washington. i know virginia's to our south across the potomac. but this is the canary in the mine that just died for the republican party. >> well, i think it did. if you look at virginia, it's a purple state. it was red, it's become more blue. it's gone for obama a couple of times. but it's very close. it's a changing state. growing hispanic populatio
and democratic candidate terry mcauliffe, still can't manage to shake off his second place spot in the polls. this in a purple state, that despite going for president obama in the last two presidential elections, hasn't previously picked a democrat for president since 1964, and gave victories to gaap candidaop can the state level in '09 and 2010. which may say something about what voters think about the cuccinelli kind of republican, the kind that has the same conservative policies as chris christie, but also does things like waging a war on sodomy, and who actually wanted the the supreme court to weigh in on where he thinks consenting adults should and should not put their parts. and said that, out loud, where we could all hear him. though some people who were listening, apparently liked what they heard. to the tune of $20 million that have poured into cuccinelli's campaign coffers. of course, it falls far short of the $34 million that terry mcauliffe has raked in. but all those millions do tell us something else about what's to come from these campaigns, because according to the nonpartisa
looks like he might have a chance. he's moving closer to terry mcauliffe, the democrat, who's had a comfortable lead. could he pull this out? >> you know, if you'd asked me that last week, i would have said no way. but what's happening in this race, interestingly enough, i talked to ken cuccinelli late this week. and he told me that their polls are narrowing. that's what any politician will tell you. but what he's telling me is the number one reason that he's closing that gap is one word, paul, obama care. this has become a big issue in this state race because terry mcauliffe is all in for obama care, the attorney general ken cuccinelli is against it. so it's interesting how that obama care issue may have a big impact on a big state race on tuesday. >> interesting. can obama care trump the earlier shutdown problems? >> exactly. >> ken cuccinelli in northern virginia which provides about 30% of the statewide vote. now in new york city, quickly, in the mayor's race, fascinating decision here by secretary circuit court of appeals throwing -- putting a stay on the ban on stop and fris

terry mcauliffe ahead of tuesday's gubernatorial election. he is squaring off against republican convention alley, virginia's attorney general. obama seized on the anti-to the recent government shutdown in his remarks. >> you have seen some extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. [boos] this isn't just speculation, we saw it last month. here in virginia you felt the pain of the first government shutdown in 17 years. and there are a lot of states that felt more of the pain then folks right here in virginia. -- and there aren't a lot of states that felt more of the pain then folks right here virginia. city, dayyork laborers and their allies gathered sunday to call for immigration reform and to highlight the role of immigrant workers in the recovery effort after superstorm sandy, just over one year ago. the workers rallied in foley square to call for relief from deportation for worke
the president going to campaigning with terry mcauliffe on sunday? not sure what you're talking about, investigations are something that are not handled here. the president believes strongly that terry mcauliffe is the right person for the job, and looks forward to campaigning for him. >> [indiscernible] >> whatever investigation you are talking about is something for investigative authorities to comment on. >> we tell us what the president's message on sunday will be, and we've hurt his message before. is this the only rally he is doing this election cycle? >> this is an off year. >> this is the one speech that he will get this year, and what will it contain? >> he will say mcauliffe is the right choice for virginia and will make an argument for why. the on that, you will have to you and see -- beyond that, will have to wait and see. --really [indiscernible] [laughter] >> i do not have any updates on his schedule. >> is it fair to say somebody gets daily updates on enrollment figures? >> we set up briefings -- >> somebody every day is finding out what the numbers are -- >> cms might

pollsters they don't like. people don't like terry mcauliffe, but he is going to trounce cuccinelli, because cuccinelli is so much more disliked by virginia voters. >> yeah, they don't like necessarily terry mcauliffe, but they like legal birth control. >> right. >> one more quick question to bob. chris christie, what he's doing, obviously, is going to win in new jersey. but he also engineered a race in which corey booker would not be on the same ballot. so in fairness, he did engineer a landslide for himself. could he replicate virginia. could he win outside of jersey? >> i guess we'll find out. but i've been with him in other states. north carolina and new hampshire, which are very different kinds of states. the people loved him there, too. he's a very, very absolute shhh rude guy and has got some very intelligent people working for him. so i think it's going to be a very interesting race that starts after the election tomorrow. >> all right. it's all good until you bully a teacher. all right, ryan grim and bob engelel, thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> all right, and still ahead,
democrat terry mcauliffe and republican ken cuche nelli is a whole lot closer. vice president biden campaigns for mcauliffe later today. yesterday it was president obama's turn in virginia. our chief political analyst, gloria gorger joins us now. chris christie seems to be campaigning as if this is a neck-and-neck race, he holds a commanding lead in the polls. but beyond winning tomorrow, he's clearly looking ahead. >> right. i mean he's clearly looking towards 2016. and he wants to get as big a margin as he can. just like george w. bush did when he ran for governor of texas. and then ran for the presidency. and i think if you look at the republican party, they're going to have to take a look at someone like chris christie. who is winning in a blue state, by appealing not just to the base of the republican party, but actually appealing to those independent voters. that have been so elusive to republicans in the past. so the party has to kind of make a decision about that. because if you look at the state of virginia, which you were just talking about, the republican candidate who se
election has dipped from the previous one. just twice. both terry mcauliffe and ken cuccinelli seem to be aware of that history because when there's general discontent with the choices, that's what happens. it happened in 1985 when a democrat won and in 1998 when jim gilmore won. 64% of mcauliffe voters claim they're not voting for mcauliffe but against cuccinelli. >>> next up, the fifth, as in the fifth circuit court of appeals. where a federal judge ruled monday that a new texas law that restricts -- puts new restrictions on abortion are unconstitutional. the law was famously filibustered by democratic state senator wendy davis who has now launched a bid for governor. the law was set to go into effect today. texas attorney general greg abbott, also running for goff, no was expected to file an emergency appeal. we've seen this time and again. state laws on abortions usually get stopped or overturned by the courts. our final number for you today, 100. that's how many days are left until the 2014 winter olympics in sochi, russia. go get your maps out and if ig your out where that is.
of surprise in virginia, terry mcauliffe, grew up in new york, seems to be heading for a victory over cuccinelli. in new jersey, chris christie seems to be coasting to re-election in a big blue state. despite those revelations in "double down." and he's making no secret that he's at least looking at a presidential run. peggy noonan, you spent some time with governor christie this week. >> yeah, he was beginning his big seven-day bus tour of new jersey to, you know, to end on election day. i found him to be an example of the lost joy, the lost pleasure of politics, he's out there having fun, they love him, he's going to win by 20, 25, whatever, points, he's feeling triumphant, that's a rare thing to see in a republican these days. so, it was wonderful to witness. let me tell you something that i have been thinking about with regard to new jersey and virginia, new jersey is about to, we believe, it looks like, re-elect a red state figure who is pro-life and he's about to win by a lot of points as it appears from the poll. ken cuccinelli, down south in virginia, he's a pro-life guy who's
. let's look at the latest numbers in virginia. real clear show democrat terry mcauliffe beating cuccinelli by 7.5 points. cuccinelli trails women voters by 13 points in one poll and by 24 in another. senator brown, for all the talk in the g.o.p. about learning lessons from november 2012 when it comes to single women, when it comes to hispanics, are you guys making the same mistakes again? >> i thought that ad was against me. i thought that was my ad that they were running against me. it's the blueprint they use on republicans. it's something obviously we have to try to deal within a more effective way. i look at obviously cuccinelli's race and governor christie's race. we have a purple and blue state. it looks like governor christie, the more moderate of the two who's approached things in a bipartisan problem solving manner appears he's going to win in high double digits. you have mr. cuccinelli going back to the tea party fiscal and social conservative base and really catering to them. in a purple state, and he potentially may lose. it's not over obviously. we have to figure ou
show democrat terry mcauliffe holding a slim lead over republican ken cuccinelli. quinnipiac has him 46-40. mcauliffe's up 50-43. however, the libertarian has 8 percentage points of the vote. and that comes out of cuccinelli's hide. and ron paul is in there campaigning for him as was rand paul last week. so let's talk. joining us now, republican strategist phil musser, president of new frontier strategy. ari and jim are still with us. phil musser, let me go to virginia. can cuccinelli take -- snatch victory from the jaws of defeat? is that possible? >> hey, i hope so, larry. you know, it's really all about turnout. remember, we have to have 40% of the available vote show up in 2009 for bob mcdonnell's rather historic win. if we have that same number of votes in the polling that we've seen publicly and privately, it's probably tough. the way that ken wins tomorrow is if we have a fairly low turnout, more in the 30% to 33% range. he's been focusing on getting his base out. as you just mentioned, he's closing his campaign, sending a message to libertarian supporters and sarvis by having ra
in virginia. you have a tea party favorite who is in deep trouble right now. terry mcauliffe, the democratic candidate for governor, he's ahead in all of the polls. he's got some flaws out there. but he looks like he's poised to win. >> if terry mcauliffe wins, watch chris christie, to use that election as much as his own big margin in new jersey, to say that the republicans finally won virginia back. bob mcdonnell, the governor, even though he's had issues, you have mark warner, democrat, tim keane, democrat. you have an improving economy. there's no reason a republican candidate can't win, the right republican candidate can't win this year in virginia and yet should be popular with conservatives because he sued to block the president's health care law. yet it looks like he's losing. chris christie will say i can win a blue state. the tea party guy can't win a competitive conservative state. republicans, you should learn a message. >> one of the things that affects virginia was the shutdown. because you have all the government employees in northern virginia, the shutdown was not exactly pop
to break maybe even 60%. unheard of for a republican in that state. a string of polls show that terry mcauliffe is several points ahead of his republican rival, ken cuccinelli. the question is what it will lock like on november 5th. he brought in the big dog, long time friend and former president you may know by the name of bill clinton. boost turn out particularly among african-american voters in college towns. on sunday, clinton kicked off a four-day, nine-city tour of the state with mcoffive. casting cuccinelli as divicive. he urged democrats not to take anything for granted. >> the one political virtue of extremism is this. if you can really get people all hot and bothered and their inside is in knots, full of anger and steam coming out of their ears instead of a light bulb going off in their brains, they will vote. they will show up every time. >> republicans inside washington run against health care and republicans outside washington run against washington, democrats everywhere are running against the tea party. >> just recently my opponent, ken cuccinelli was campaigning at a gathering o
. >> oh, yeah. if as we expect terry mcauliffe gets elected governor of virginia, we'll break that trend where usually a member of the party that doesn't hold the white house gets elected. >> all the way back to '72. an unbelievable trend. >> so democrats will take heart from this but they know they can't read too much into this when in the midst of the polls, nbc/wall street journal poll being the most recent that shows they have got problems of their own. so i think these off-year elections, you know, we have to take with a grain of salt. >> they do. i think it's interesting the messaging christie is trying to do out of this. it's clear he wants to -- he is trying to almost refine his brand. he already had this brand, but he wants to use this re-election to refine it. >> absolutely. i think the new jersey race is probably the most interesting of the three that we've got coming up this week just because chris christie is such a phenom. it will be interesting to see how big his coat tails are. we suspect he's going to get re-elected. >> did they actually get other republicans elected. th
of the day this is a big moment for terry mcauliffe the fact that he's being taken seriously. he's always been this fundraiser but a gap between people taking him as a serious policy guy, a serious politician and just a friend of the clintons that can raise a lot of coin. >> jim, thank you. coming up red sox says jon lester pitched a gem in game five of the world series last night. moving closer to a world series title. highlights of game five next. i'm a careful investor. when you do what i do, you think about risk. i don't like the ups and downs of the market, but i can't just sit on my cash. i want to be prepared for the long haul. ishares minimum volatility etfs. investments designed for a smoother ride. find out why 9 out of 10 large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus, which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. risk includes possible loss of principal. it's not the "juggle a bunch of rotating categories" card. it's not the "sign up for
